Mini Valentine's Day Cards

Hi everyone! I am back with another 10 minutes or less project (that is per card) to share with you. If you remember yesterday I made planner paper clips with one of Eileen Hull's diecuts. You can find that blog post HERE. Well, today I am using the Needle Book Scoreboard Diecut to make little Valentine's Day cards. I started by cutting from Pink and Ivory Dot Reverse and Navy and Kraft Mini Dot Reverse Cardstocks.

I folded all three of the pieces in half. The first two cards I used scraps from the 7 Gypsies Maritime 6"x6" pad. The fish and the ship I had fussy cut out before hand and was in with my stash of punch outs and diecuts that I keep handy. The fish is cut from the General Store on Ivory Cardstock. I used one of the banner diecuts from the Banners and Pennants Diecuts to make a little hat for the fish and placed a little punched out heart under its fin. The fish wasn't complete until I added a googlie eye to it. :-)

The ship cut out is from Bon Voyage on Ivory Cardstock and I tore a piece of cardstock and adhered over the bottom of the ship to create the look of water and  I adhered a punched out a heart to the front along with a sentiment. I forgot to add that all the sentiments are printed from the computer.

The basket of flowers is a printable that I had cut out and didn't use. I added it to the front of the card along with a scrap of Tan and Ivory French Script Cardstock and felt heart ribbon. I also added sequins, Dew Drops and a bit of lace and twine.

I plan on added these cards to packages that will be going out in the mail soon and think each card only took 10 minutes to create.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Easy Peasy Flower Planner Paper Clips

Hi everyone!  This month on Eileen Hull's inspiration team we where each challenged to create a project in 10 minutes or less using one of Eileen's diecut. Well, let me say I never create something in 10 minutes let a lone in an hour. I am notorious for arranging and rearranging cardstock and embellishments for what seems like hours until I get the look I want.

After thinking and looking at all of my wonderful Eileen Hull diecuts I decided that I would create something useful for my planner and this is what I came up with. I started with Buttons, Border and Trim diecut and different colors of scraps of felt I had on hand.

After cutting out several flowers and leaves I added a little Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac to the back of each flower, layering two to three flowers together and adhering to the paper clip and the leaves/lace and Ric Rac to the back of the paper clips.

I finished off with sequins, buttons and Dew Drops and now I can "pretty up" my planner! These where so quick and under 10 minutes to do. I know I will be making more of these.

For more inspiration check out Eileen Hull's blog HERE.  If you have any questions please let me know.

Supplies Used: Eileen Hull: Buttons, Border and Trim diecut, Felt, Sequins, Buttons, Lace, Ric Rac, Paper Clips, Thread, Dew Drops, Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac

Once Upon a Time There was a Fairy that Lived in a Vase

Hi everyone! I am back with my other vase I created using Eileen Hull's 3D vase diecut. As  with the other vase I cut it out from mat board and spritzed with Verdigris glimmer of my favorite Tattered Angels products! Once dry I glued the vase together.

The fairy image I found on the Land of Nod Studio blog. I printed, fussy cut the image out and added Stickles to the wings.

I added crinkled tissue inside of the vase and then adhered moss and the fairy image on top on the tissue paper.

The pansy/flower diecut is new from Eileen Hull...which hasn't come out yet so I don't have a link to that so stay tuned. :-) I actually watered down Sugar Plum Fairy (discontinued)  and Moss glimmer mists and painted the flower shapes on both side and let dry. 

Once the flower pieces were dry I shaped and put together. I added a button and Dew Drop to the center and adhered to the fairy along with pink tulle and sewing thread.

I added sequins and mini flat back pearls to finish off the vase. 

Here are my two vases along with past projects...snowman candy drawer and you can barely see the corner of the suitcase (pink and lime green) in Eileen Hull's booth at CHA. :-)
I hope you enjoyed this project and if you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Bloomin' Vase

Hi there! I hope everyone is warm and safe and had no problems with the "big" snow storm that came through. We only got over at inch of snow and our electricity didn't go out...YEAH!  I am getting around to sharing a few more projects that I created for CHA and the one today was in Eileen Hull's booth. The 3D vase diecut was a re-release diecut of Eileen's. I had actually won this diecut for one of her Art with Heart Challenges.
I cut it out of mat board and spritzed with Tattered Angels Dragonfly Glimmer Mist and let dry and then put together.

Donna who is on Eileen's inspiration team with me sent me these flowers since I didn't have the diecut yet. These flowers where cut with the Flower and Leaf Stitchlet thinlits Dies. I shaped the flowers and added buttons to the center of each one.

Next I stuffed some tissue paper down into the vase and adhered moss on top on the tissue and then added the flowers. Wa-laaa very simple project! :-)
If you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also be sure to check back on Monday for another take on the vase diecut. :-)

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Canvas Banner of Love Banner

Hi everyone! I am back to share a banner I created for Canvas Corp's booth at CHA. I used a variety of canvas shapes as follows: Canvas Pennants, Pocket and Tag to create the bases for a love banner. I spattered and sprayed all of the shapes with the following glimmer mists and glam glitter paints: Cadillac Pink, Wedding Pink and Grandma's House.

I cut a scalloped circles from Lt Pink Burlap and Pink and Ivory Toile Cardstock to add to the various banner shapes.

I cut the letters LOVE from the Black on Kraft Alpa cardstock. and framed with some of the letters with Pink Lemonade Thickstock and a heart was cut from the Pink Lemonade for the center banner too.

I adhered a Vintage Brass Heart along with pink thread, button and dew drop to the corner of the heart.

On a couple of the banners I used White Mini Bags in a fun way to frame some of the letters along with Lace, thread and Jute.

The medallions for some of the banners are cut from Pink and Ivory Ribbon Stripe cardstock which I punched out and added Pink Lemonade Thickstock circles to the centers along with a button and some Jute.

When all the banners where finished I spaced and clipped with a Mini Lt. Pink Clothes Pin to Waxed Cotton White Cord. There you have it a simple Valentine's Day banner.

Here are a couple of photos that my friend Jennifer took of my banner being displayed in Canvas Corps booth.

If you have any questions about how this banner was made and put together please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
